NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered 14th FIR in the multi-crore Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh on Thursday and two more preliminary enquiries into mysterious deaths related to the scandal.

The agency has registered an FIR against 38 accused, including the then Controller of Examinations Pankaj Trivedi and the then System Analyst Nitin Mohindra of Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board,  relating to alleged illegalities committed in Junior Food Supplies Officer and Inspector, Weights and Measurements recruitment examination conducted by board in 2012.

“Both Pankaj Trivedi and Nitin Mohindra were involved in the irregularities in the examination,” said a senior CBI officer.

The agency has registered preliminary enquiry relating to the alleged “unnatural death” of 29-year-old Ramendra Singh Bhadoriya, a resident of Anand Nagar at Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh.

“The alleged unnatural death occurred on January 1, 2015 in Gwalior. Inquest proceedings u/s 174 CrPC were conducted at Hajira Police Station,” said the officer.

Bhadoriya was found hanging from a ceiling fan at his home in Gwalior’s Khanchmil mohalla, with a pillow cover over his face and a TV cable wire around his neck.

Devastated by the death, Bhadoriya’s mother Kusma Devi, 58, killed herself five days later by consuming acid.

Bhadoriya worked at the Birla Hospital in the district while studying to clear his post-graduation entrance exam and his name was on the list of successful candidates when the results were declared three weeks after his death.

The local police had concluded that he committed suicide due a failed love affair with a colleague he had planned to marry.
